The Little Known Secret To Weight Loss - Visualization

Dec 13, 2007
Here is something that you do not think about everyday when it comes to losing weight. Visualization is a key ingredient in your weight loss arsenal.

People who successfully lose weight cultivate this habit without even realizing that they are doing so. This is one of those secrets that is hidden in plain view. All you have to do is consistently visualize yourself in your mind as to how you want to look and feel.

This at first glance may appear to be silly. It is, however, a fact that the mind will respond just as much to an imaginary stimulus as it will to a real one. As you implant this new self image into your subconscious, you will be directed to act appropriately to achieve your goal of a target weight and to be healthier. There is no great difficulty in applying this technique. You simply train your mind to envision the image of how you wish to look and feel. In the process you will become more positive, more accepting of you diet changes and your exercise regimen. This is the single and most influential technique to help you obtain your weight goals easily and quickly.

The idea of creating change through visualization has become more acceptable. Doctors and psychologists do not really know why this works. It is clear though that there is a definite connection between the mind and the body. If you have a realistic goal and it is something that you truly want, it will much more likely happen when you program these changes at a subconscious level. The technique of visualization will definitely help us to lose weight by creating a clear picture of what we want to achieve. By not using this tool we will hit psychological walls of our own making.

This may surprise you, but many overweight people simply believe that they are not able to lose weight. This is something that you might tell yourself. You may hear this from others that you know. For many people this is just a subconscious belief. Regardless, it is a factor that influences our being. For a person that believes they cannot lose weight will always be fighting their own negative nature. Even when dieting and exercising. The subconscious is incredibly powerful and will fight you every step of the way until it is reprogrammed. Visualization is one of the best techniques that you can apply to overcome your negative programming.

If you find that you are troubled by strong negative influences, sit down twice a day for about 15 minutes. Visualize yourself at your ideal weight. You may find during the day that you have to correct negative images even while engaged in your daily activities. If you are persistent, in the end you will win out. With the passage of time and continual practice you can successfully reprogram your negative images. As a result, you will lose weight and experience improved health.

It is crucial to do this every single day. Once in the morning and again in the evening. Take about 15 minutes in a quiet spot. Visualize yourself at your ideal or target weight. Some people will find that this is very easy to do. Others may experience some difficulty. Practice will eventually make it easier.

To reinforce these daily visualization exercises, when you go about your daily work, think of yourself at your target weight. Get to enjoy the feeling of having a positive self image. As time goes on this will be a wonderful aid in your weight loss program.

By incorporating this technique your weight loss program will be both successful and permanent. Try this method for yourself and discover just how well it contributes to your weight loss program.
